Hello Readers! I can’t believe we are here at the end of the summer and getting ready for fall. If you’ve been following for some time, you know I’ve done a sprinkling of picture book features and interviews prior to this year. But 2020 has been the year for Kid Lit Love to really get underway. I guess I was motivated by the pandemic and realizing how greatly this could impact books being able to get into the hands of young readers.
So I’ve been doing weekly posts since March. Here’s a look back at the amazing books featured this year on Kid Lit Love. I hope you’ll check them out and their authors/illustrators as well. Let’s keep doing our part to get books out to children while providing them with excellent material to really spark their love for reading!
Here’s the village of people who helped make the Kid Lit Love series this year. Congratulations on your books!
